Variety is reporting (according to an article posted on SuperHeroHype) that Ghost Rider 2 is going ahead and not only that but David Goyer (of recent Batman fame) is in talks with Columbia Pictures to work on it:
David Goyer is in early talks to create the story and supervise writers for a film expected to once again star Nicolas Cage. The trade adds that plans are under way to base the sequel on a script written years ago by Goyer (The Dark Knight, "Blade" franchise"). The original Ghost Rider was written by director Mark Steven Johnson.I'm not sure how I feel about a revamp of the character, which I'm sure they'll do, but I am very happy that the franchise didn't just die forever. I have all the faith in the world in Goyer, but I do hope he seriously improves on his original script that he wrote before MSJ came along. Of course, that was about a decade ago now and I'm sure he's learned a thing or two since then. Either way, I'll be keeping a close eye on this story as it develops.
